REV. AURELIA GREEN, REST IN PEACE BY COUNCILMAN REV. RUBEN DIAZ

You should know, that the Rev. Hon. Aurelia Green, one of the noblest human beings I have ever known, has gone to live with our Lord in heaven.

I knew Rev. Aurelia Green many years back, when together with her husband the Rev. Jerome Alexander Green, started the re-development of then “the disastrous and abandoned Bronx County.

When the banks, factories, businesses, and most of the population abandoned the “Burning Bronx” The Rev. Aurelia & Jerome Green stood firmed, to help create the new Bronx.

With the deepest sadness, I liked to share a few words about Aurelia Green, first, she was a champion for human rights, a real down to earth advocate for our communities, never giving up to achieve the best for the peoples she served, as a dearly Reverend, she was committed to a ministerial cause of serving everyone, I could count myself to be blessed that she considered me her friend, today I would like to express my deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Rest in peace my dear friend 

I am Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz, and this is what you should know.
